Upper School Assembly Celebrates Robert Burns

24 January 2020

The Upper School boys were enchanted by the wonderful sounds of the bagpipes as they entered Assembly today. A huge thank you to the boys for a joint Assembly on Robert Burns and Burns Night.

Their presentation explained that Robert Burns was a poet and songwriter, and his most famous song was Auld Lang Syne. The boys also learnt about the history and celebrations of Burns Night. After understanding the meaning of kinship and unity behind Auld Lang Syne, the boys thoroughly enjoyed singing along with the bagpipes! Please click here to see the performances in action.

It was an amazing way to celebrate Burns Night and understand the Scottish culture.
